Scientists deployed several sequencing platforms to characterize the genome of Chenopodium quinoa, an important and highly nutritious cereal crop. They analyzed the assembly to better understand the plant’s remarkable stress tolerance and its genomic evolution. SageELF was used to prepare DNA fractions for PCR-free library construction in an Illumina workflow.
